The pope speaks today…

“We believe that preaching is exceedingly necessary and praiseworthy, yet that it must be exercised by the authority or license of the Supreme Pontiff or by the permission of prelates. But in all places where manifest heretics remain and renounce and blaspheme God and the faith of the holy Roman Church, we believe that, by disputing and exhorting in all ways according to God, we should confound them, and even unto death oppose them with the sword of God as adversaries of Christ and the Church.”

— Pope Innocent III, Profession of Faith Prescribed for Durand of Osca and HIs Waldnesian COMpanions (18 Dec. 1208; DS 426)
